It's that time of year again. No, not Christmas, but the time I take all my remaining annual leave from work and spend it playing with technology.
This year it's Angular.js. Or more acurately, how to best make use of it without throwing away the useful stuff I've already got.
If you're reading this on an unfinished looking site then you're probably looking at the work-in-progress version of my Angular re-write. Also, my appologies for the state of things, including the unparsed nature of this text.
In a simple parallel, I've got years of blogging waffle in a Drupal CMS installation, which I'd like to keep using as the CMS tool, but also make use of in an Angular front end. At the moment, the Drupal site is configured to spit out JSON and I'm playing with a seperate Angular based site that consumes that JSON.
Hopefully the things I learn doing this will be applicable to the situation at work too. For example, it's starting to smell like a REST/$resource type approach is the way to go for 'real' projects. If we can built a thin REST layer into Foundations, then Angular and probably most other new fangled JS frameworks will play nice with it.
